How long do eggs keep? I've got almost 2 dozen that got put in the fridge with the date facing towards the back, so I didnt realize they are stamped Dec 27. I haven't done any baking lately, so I cant say how long its been since I used one. I know older eggs are easier to peel.....is this TOO old???

Put them in water. If they float, they're bad.

Just a tip I've learned since we started raising hens (and I'm floating over with eggs). If you rub mineral oil on the egg, it seals and protects them for up to 3 months (I found of a USDA website so it's 100% safe). Quality at 2 months is just like new. At 3, they start to break down a bit, but are still fine to eat.

The floating test is more to determine the age of the egg since the air sac tends to expand over time, it won't reliably tell if the egg is good/bad. Still tasty says 3-5 wks from date of purchase IF kept refrigerate the entire time. ... http://www.stilltasty.com/fooditems/index/17144

I use the float test and I have never found a bad egg. As long as there are no cracks and they float they are fine.

Personally, I would toss and buy fresh since eggs aren't that expensive and 4 weeks in the refrig seems like long time.
